Quintonil and Pujol have a lot in common. Not only are they located a few blocks from each other in Polanco but the chef at Quintonil also worked at Pujol, and Pujol’s most famous dish - the mole madre that’s been cooking since 2013 - was initially made to celebrate the one year anniversary of Quintonil. Quintonil serves one of the best moles we’ve ever had as well, and the menu has a similar focus to Pujol’s on local ingredients and beautiful presentations. They offer a rotating tasting menu for about $125 per person or you can order a la carte, in which case you’ll need to order the crab tostada with habanero mayo and the ant chorizo with creamy, cheesy rice. If you can’t get a dinner reservation, which is difficult because they’re only available two months in advance, then come for one of the best lunches in this city. Or any city.

Restaurante Nicos

Nicos is a drive, but it’s worth the trip for excellent food from a family-owned traditional Mexican spot. Get the enchiladas and duck mole.

Churrería El Moro

You can get trendy churros now, but none are quite as good as the classic El Moro.
